Immediately following President Trump announcing Judge Neil Gorsuch as his Supreme Court pick on Tuesday, MSNBC appeared flat-footed by the “traditional rollout” of Gorsuch with chief legal correspondent Ari Melber noting how the reality-television predictions didn’t hold true while Gorsuch was “elegant and broad.”

Despite that praise from Melber, Hardball host Chris Matthews predicted that Gorsuch’s fate will be determined by whether or not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell removes the filibuster (for which Matthews opined is unlikely).
